Sustainable Connections - Transforming a Community Through Local Business
Michelle Long shows us how a highly successful local independent business network has transformed Bellingham, WA, while inspiring other communities. From an initial "Think Local First" program, they have expanded to business peer mentoring, and support for local food producers, sustainable buildings, and green energy. An astounding sixty percent of their community are not only aware of the "Think Local, Buy Local, Be Local" campaign but have changed their buying habits.
